The Atlas Moth
The Atlas Moth
In April 2007, a mutual desire to play, a deep love for the almighty riff, and more than just a little blind luck drew together five young men from Chicago, and nine months later, they had a five-song EP, Pray For Tides, completed and a label, Witch Trial Records, to release it. Fast-forward less than three years and The Atlas Moth have made massive strides, touring relentlessly across the nation and playing countless shows with their friends and brothers in Nachtmystium, Zoroaster, Pentagram, Yakuza, Saviours, Intronaut, Wolves in the Throne Room, Coalesce, Battlefieds, Minsk, Plague Bringer, Samothrace, andWhy Intercept? With influences ranging from the Deftones to Neurosis, Cave In to Quicksand, and pulling in pieces from all that’s heavy in between, The Atlas Moth have carefully perfected their signature blend of bone-shaking heaviness and overwhelming urgency, adding in startling moments of clarity that allow the melodies to shine through the mire. Their swamp-worthy sludge epics are heavier than sin, a call for cleansing and nothing short of brutally honest.

The atlas moth itself lives for only a few weeks, but the band to which it lent its name is in it for the long haul. The Atlas Moth have taken their sweet time in writing and recording their Candlelight debut, road-testing each new jam as guitarist/ keyboardist and engineer Andrew Ragin slaved over the boards in search of that perfect sound. This meticulous approach to songwriting means that every song they recorded has a story of its own, and bears the mark of days spent driving through endless fields and nights spent laying their hearts and instruments bare to an army of strangers. With the completion of their jaw-dropping debut album for Candlelight, A Glorified Piece of Blue- Sky, and endless tour dates on the horizon, The Atlas Moth have only begun to rock.

A Light Within
A Light Within
Throughout time mankind has lived a dark and dreary existence. Even in the light, there is a heavy sense of foreboding. With a grim, defeatist outlook on life, man lives without much hope. It's in these times that all men possess the power of A Light Within to offer a glimmer of hope. It's this light that drives us to move forward so that we may truly be alive. We strive to reach that ultimate feeling, that power of A Light Within.
